“Finally an HTML5 client for Windows RDS farms”

Presentation

In this tutorial, I explain how to set up the HTML 5 client interface to connect to the RDS farm on Windows.

Until now to connect to Remote Desktop or RemoteApp, it was necessary to have a heavy RDP client.

To connect without a client, it was necessary to implement alternatives such as Citrix Netscaler / StoreFront, Sophos XG …

Since March 2018, Microsoft has previewed an HTML5 client that installs on the server with the RD Web Access role, which allows you to connect to desktops and applications without the need for a heavy client.

Prérequis

  • Servers with Remote Desktop, Service Broker, and Remote Desktop Gateway Web Access roles must be running Windows Server 2016/2019.
  • The https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4025334/windows-10-update-kb4025334 update must be installed on the Remote Desktop Gateway server.
  • Broker / Gateway / Web Access certificates should not be self-signed. (They can come from a private Authority)
  • The license mode must be per user.
